The Out of the Darkness Community Walks are the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s (AFSP) signature fundraising campaign, bringing together family, friends, colleagues, and supporters at 3-5 mile walks in hundreds of communities across the country.
When you walk in the Out of the Darkness Community Walks, you join the effort with thousands of people to raise funds and awareness for AFSP’s vision to create a world without suicide.
from Barry Campbell:
We will be walking on February 7, 2015, for David Campbell (aka STRAT) – beloved son, father, rap artist, poet, and friend. He touched the lives of many and his footprints on their lives enhanced their world. Although we have lost him in life, he will live through his son Taylor, his poetry, his music, and many wonderful memories. He will be forever loved and remembered by his family and friends.
We will be joining with many other people to walk in the Orlando 8th Annual Community Walk, benefiting the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), and we would appreciate any support that you give for this worthwhile cause.
The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is at the forefront of research, education and prevention initiatives designed to reduce loss of life from suicide. With more than 39,000 lives lost each year in the U.S. and over one million worldwide, the importance of AFSP’s mission has never been greater, nor our work more urgent.
You can visit the Team STRAT page here. My wife and I miss David (STRAT) as well as his creativity expressed through his songs and poetry. And, like my brother and his wife, we enjoy watching David’s son Taylor growing up even though we live too far away from Orlando to see him as often as we would like.
These walks not only help raise funds but are walks of a million memories.

Thank you for sharing word of this event, Malcolm; very profound, particularly given the increasing number of suicides noted since 1999.
More people need to know about the resources out there. Thanks for your visit.
